As anticipation grows for King Charles III’s Coronation, MSC Cruises has revealed its onboard celebrations that will take place aboard MSC Virtuosa, offering guests an opportunity to partake in the national festivities whilst at sea!
MSC Virtuosa is no stranger to celebrations and has previously celebrated other events in the UK calendar, including the Queen’s Jubilee & Wimbledon. They have planned several exclusive events and additions for passengers to commemorate this significant event whilst at sea.
Exclusive Coronation Gala Dinner
To commence the array of planned festivities, guests will receive invitations to an elegant Coronation Gala Dinner. Embracing the occasion in style, attendees can dress in their finest attire, just like the Royal Family! (Pack anything Red, White or Blue!)
British Culinary Delights
During the Coronation period, MSC Virtuosa will present new, limited-edition menu items for passengers on sailings. The first specially crafted dish is the King’s Summer Pudding, a delectable clotted ice cream dessert with a wild berry compote.
Traditional British favourites such as pasties, bangers and mash, and fish and chips will also be available. Additionally, a coronation high tea featuring classics like sandwiches, scones, and cake, will be part of the standard buffet menu included in every MSC Cruise.
A Majestic Cake – Fit For a King! ????
MSC Virtuosa’s skilled pastry team will work diligently to produce an impressive ‘Crown Cake’ displayed in the onboard Infinity Atrium for guests to admire (and sample later!)
Themed Decorations and Live Coronation Broadcast
The ship will be adorned with bunting, Union Jacks, and other themed decorations to evoke a patriotic ambience. The Coronation will be streamed live across the ship’s numerous restaurants, bars, and lounges, ensuring no guest misses the grand event (including the big outside screen – weather permitting)
New Entertainment Program
Ahead of the bank holiday weekend, MSC Virtuosa’s Cruise Director will unveil an exciting new entertainment lineup designed to entertain and delight all passengers!
They are requested to bring Red, White and Blue attire to join in with some special events – full details will be in the Daily Planner once on board. They will include a King’s Coronation Street Party and, of course, the all-time MSC favourite: White Party!
